Simple and effective process. I like the fact that he begins his balance with the console. No unnecessary moves. Fair use of presets (pro C2 & pro L2). Amazing sound. Inspiring stuff!

Mick is always so clean and direct in his decisions. I love that. And the final result is so clean yet powerful and moving. Thanks for sharing...

Another video where the audio is not lined up with the video. You can see it when he mixes. The kick is lit up on pro tools but the sound of it happens seconds later! I’m a professional video production expert, send me the videos and sound and I will put the video together correctly.

Not much explanation here. Lots of twisting of knobs that are too small to be followed.

Yeah Mick! Been a long time since we did that Puremix video together. Great to see you mixing. You do all the same things I do to drums, but you do them better! At least I know I'm on the right track, haha!

Just fantastic, I'm 24 learning how to mix and there's knowledge to pick up at every turn. Thanks, I'm super grateful!

I love Mick's mixes! And he's actually the first S6 owner I see, who uses the console for more than just stockpiling papers and scores on it ;-)

Sounding really good but the HiHat bleed into the snare's mic. Every single hit is weird. Something like 2 hihats, one in the center very mid rangy, another bright overly panned. The decision to use too much gate is the issue. This is probably because he's not a rock guy. Apart from that, really good.

I always love Mick's mixes. This is no exception. All of the sounds were great together, but I kept wanting to hear the vocal just a slight bit higher in the mix. I'm seeing how years of mixing allows him to carve out each instrument and lay it into the mix with no fighting between them. The organ and guitars could have been a bear! Great mix!
